3½ cups (16 ounces) high-gluten flour (Only Tipo“00” flour such as Caputo flour can be used if making Neapolitan pizza).
9 ounces warm water
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon instant yeast
¾ teaspoon salt
In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, mix on low speed until ingredients come together and form a scrappy dough. Add olive oil and mix for a few seconds longer until it's incorporated into the dough. Switch to the dough hook attachment and set mixer to medium speed. Allow mixer to knead the dough for a full 15 minutes at which time it should pass a windowpane test. Place dough in a large oiled bowl and cover tightly with plastic wrap. Place dough in the refrigerator for 24 hours. This is the trick that most home cooks don’t do. The dough needs to rise slow and cold to give it that NY style crust.
Make sure that your stone is in the grill for at least 15 minutes before you slab the pizza. The grill may be 650 but the stone also needs to be that temp.
Thanks for the recipe! I'll task Tasha with whipping this up one day!
